Virginia Resisters

Tired of Virginia climate underachievers? So are we. 

On February 9th we call them out. We're participating in the 1st Annual Underachiever Polar Bear Plunge as the "Virginia Resisters." We are going to "go big' and plunge our toes into the James River to showcase Dominion’s ridiculous lack of ambition on clean energy and climate, and the rubber stamping of fracked-gas pipelines through our state.

Here are the event details: 

WHAT: An enthralling "toe-dipping" plunge experience into the James River

WHEN: February 9th starting at 11:00 AM

WHERE: We'll start at CCAN's Richmond office (33 S. 13th St. Suite C 
Richmond, VA 23219) 

WHY: To spotlight Virginia's climate underachievers! 

PLUNGE PLAN: After catching up, we will take a leisurely stroll to the Dominion headquarters, followed by a meander down to a spot on the James River, only 5 minutes from the CCAN Richmond office, to plunge our toes in. I hope you have your toe sweaters ready to go! After our toe-tally exhausting efforts, we will head back into town for a brunch at Sine Irish Pub.

*In the event of rainy/snowy weather, we will forgo the 15 minute walk to Dominion headquarters, because that would just be too much effort for us Underachievers.
